Russ Clinches Another Triple-Double Season
Jack Henry and I enjoyed watching Russ tonight. He clinched a triple-double average for the third straight season. That's insane. "He'll go down as a Hall-of-Famer, one of the best," Paul George said after the game. "Nobody, I don't believe, will be able to match that or beat that. You've got to be wired a certain way on a nightly basis to compete at that level. He's special."
Also special was this assist:

Incidentally, Blake Griffin dropped 45 points, going 9 for 14 from downtown. Nice work, coach.
